Contemporary Bonsai Planter by Adrian Magu: Kasokudo
Kasokudo is a beautiful fusion of function and form that results in a modern and stylish bonsai planter.
“Designer Adrian Magu’s interest for everything green and his work in the automotive industry has resulted in the Kasokudo Bonsai Planter; a stunning fusion of form and function.
Referencing speed forms and manufacturing processes used in transportation design, this piece juxtaposes movement applied to what is usually a static object.
The piece gives the impression of an accelerating form that effortlessly floats to house a bonsai tree, evoking a perfect balance of dynamic harmony.
The latest manufacturing processes of the highly polished finishes of the planter and 3D-printed ‘mountains’ contrast to that of nature that usually takes many decades to grow, sculpt and form the gnarled bonsai forms.
In all, a unique synthesis of cutting-edge precision with the imperfect beauty of nature.”
